Quote from: driver on November 25, 2021, 19:04:17 PMCosta 500g are tough to beat. I buy beater brands to wear to work, but I am always relieved when I put my Costas on. With that said.. Costa is now owned by the mega Corp. Luxotica. When if comes time for a new pair I may look at Smith. I have heard good things. But have never tried. Also, after trying many brands of $50ish glasses for work. I have been happy with a brand called Reks. Supposedly unbreakable.
Quote from: troutboy_II on November 26, 2021, 13:36:21 PMI have worn Smith Guides Choice for about the last 20 years, now on my second pair last year after the "darken/lighten" part didn't work anymore on my original set. Best part of this? When I called Smith to ask what I could do to get the chromatic (?) to start working and they said "no". But that this was covered by their lifetime warranty! So after almost 20 years of happily wearing these things, this issue was covered by the warranty. So they sent me a credit for $260, the cost of a new pair. So I bought another pair. If warranty is one thing indicative of a good product, then these guys pass that test. And the new pair work as good as the last pair - easily see below the water to see trouts. You pays your money and takes your chances, but I am a Smith fan for sure, particularly after this warranty solution. Sure worth a look at if you are in the market. My $.02 since you asked...TB
